What band has not stolen from what went before though? The person we signed up here is the biggest magpie going.

A few more new [re: Pablo-Picasso]  

City, City, City, Northcote Social Club, June 12, 2005
We were there to see another band 'Deloris' but these guys supporting were great. Long instrumental passages with a heavyish prog rock sound at times reminiscent of Diamond Dogs and early Genesis. Good use of trumpets not to mention TWO drummers in addition to a lead singer who was often banging on things as well.

Andy White, Manchester Lane, June 14, 2005
A solid acoustic set from the Irish singer who at one stage collaborated with Tim Finn and the lead singer of Hothouse Flowers. The first time I saw him play was at the Hunky Dory Tribute Show so we talked about that for a while. He was also front row for Bowie's Melbourne concert last year.

War Pigs and Led Zepped, Dream Nightclub, June 25, 2005
Tributes to Black Sabbath/Ozzy Osbourne and Led Zeppelin. Both were good but I preferred the Sabbath one. Zeppelin are just not evil enough and grow more and more boring with repeat listens.

Re: What Bands Have You Seen Lately? new [re: johnnysitar]  

From the Isle Of Wight Festival:

Razolight - I had a strange episode and had to sit most of the first night out. This was possibly Razorlight induced. To be fair I like their album, but Borrel is an idiot.

Ray Davies - Great chilled out afternoon atmosphere. Perfect to take in Ray - its one of those strange "this man is a legend" moments that is hard to take in.

Roxy Music - Very smooth, very cool. Final encore was 'Do The Strand' - my favourite, so that made me happy.

Travis - Drafted in to replace Morrisey, who I can't stand - so was initially happy at the news. But Fran Healy kept forgetting his words and we all got bored and went back to camp.

Feeder - One of the highlights. Bouncing up and down to their last album - great festival band.

Snow Patrol - Still flaunting their Final Straw album, with some new ones chucked in. I had my doubts about their live credentials but they whipped up the crowd and a good time was had by all!

R.E.M. - I can only describe it as some sort of surgical strike. They came in, performed emaculatly, and were gone. Utterly faultless, which in itself is probably a fault. bollocks to it, they were great!

Seeing in concert soon -

Oasis - Milton Keynes, 9th July
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Alexandra Palace, 25th August

Its about time I had a signature

Viddy Well, Little Alex new [re: Nature_Boy]  

The Stones Throw Tour at Irving Plaza, with J-Rocc, MED, Peanut Butter Wolf, and (of course) Madlib.

I arrived right before MED went on, who was solid, but it seemed a little sad when he performed his verse from "Raid" and there was no Doom to back him up.

The between-set DJing by PB Wolf and J-Rocc was great, probably the best part of the show.

After being introduced by none other than Melvin Van Peebles - whose name was right below mine on the guestlist - Madlib came on, doing some Quas shit and some Jaylib shit. Eventually, he got up on a drum riser and started playing an interminable drum solo; I left about halfway through, because I wasn't nearly high enough to sit through 20 minutes of drumming.

Overall, pretty meh, but 'Lib did drop some hints about a second Madvillain album (!)

And out in the dark the world is still rolling
Kids in their cars, cigarette smoking
And all that they are just reeks with the sweetest belief

Finn Brothers new [re: Marquis]  

The Finn Brothers, Hamer Hall, July 25, 2005
This was the penultimate show of a long world tour. Melbourne of course is something of a second home for the Finn Brothers who are surely the greatest songwriters to emerge from New Zealand and possibly Australasia. The last time they played here (toward the start of the same tour) was when the late and great Paul Hester joined them for the encore. In the later stages of this concert, Neil explained that he could not stop thinking of Paul. He then unplugged his guitar, switched off his mic and with the spotlight only on him performed a most extraordinary 'Four Seasons in One Day' with his bare voice and guitar in a concert hall of several thousand. Of course, the entire audience joined in for one of the greatest concert moments ever and it had me teary for the next few songs. Most of the night, however, was quite loud and the brothers played one or two extended versions of their songs. A great rocking version of 'I Got You' appeared in the encore and they also did 'Disembodied Voices' absent of Visconti on mandolin and throat singing. Tomorrow night at the same venue is their final show but I have another concert to see. Thinking of this opening verse with Hester in mind, his fate and his extraordinary highs and lows has me awestruck of the genius that is Neil Finn:

Four seasons in one day
Lying in the depths of your imagination
Worlds above and worlds below
The sun shines on the black clouds hanging over the domain

I live on an island in the middle of the sea new [re: Adam]  

I forgot to mention this when it happened, but I went to Plan-it-X fest on Saturday, July 16th at Rhino's All Ages Club in Bloomington. In spite of the exorbitant door charge ($10 for a punk show? wtFUCK?! ), it was pretty much non-stop awesomeness from 7 pm 'til 1 am. The festival was the last day of a 30 day tour in which 10 or so bands piled into an old school bus and drove around the country playin' kick ass shows. All the bands played, but the ones of consequence were:

This Bike is a Pipe Bomb--Posi Southern-fried folk punk three piece from Gainesville.

Defiance, Ohio--Raucous homegrown Indiana folk punk. Hell yeah on the upright bass.

Los Gatos Negros--Utterly bizzarre screamo/hardcore outfit that dresses in cat suit leotards and tackles people in the audience. They get a gold star for best moshing EVER.

Ghost Mice--Straight up folk with punk attitude. Comprised of violin, acoustic guitar and, occasionally, harmonica.

Rosa--This was a new band to me, but they were tight as hell. Another folk punk band (notice a trend here?) that played unplugged with a guitarist, drummer, banjoist, and, get this, wash tub bass.

The concert was followed by an unpermitted street march against the proposed NAFTA highway that is slated to go through Bloomington, amongst other places. Of course, few of the local drunk punks could be bothered to go (they're more about smoking cigarettes and getting hip tattoos than actually doing shit) but, fortunately, there was a CrimethInc convergence in town, so a bloc of about 70 people marched down the middle of the main streets, blocking traffic, making noise and getting followed by cop cars all the way.

Best concert I've been to in a while!

Let's kill first the banker, with his professional demeanor
Let's televise and broadcast the raping of kings
Let our crowds be fed on tear gas and plate glass
'cause a people united is a wonderful thing

Seymour Brothers new [re: Adam]  

Adam, awesome. Reminds me of when I saw Crowded House at the last ever night of the Venue in St Kilda (1988ish) before they knocked it down and built that godawful Novotel down there. Anyways, at the time the Seymour brothers were well known having a bit of jealous rivalry going on (rumour has it Mark Seymour - after plugging away with Hunters and Collectors for well over a decade was quite envious of the enormous success of the first two Crowded House albums, of which his brother Nick was on bass) and they weren't getting along at that stage.

But this night, Crowded House were playing, we were upstairs nicking beers from the bandroom and watching the show from the VIP stalls up in the rafters and for the encore, Mark Seymour joined them onstage and they performed Throw Your Arms Around Me for the first time together. It was a special night indeed, everyone in the audience was stunned at what they were witnessing, no-one ever thought it would happen. Of course, Paul Hester was there too

Get Bowie Back Downunder!

all the young dudes, carry the news new [re: SoulLoveChild]  

Sounds great. Unfortunately, I never saw Crowded House. Apparantly, Mark Seymour joined them for the Perth show a couple of nights ago and they played as you might expect, 'Throw Your Arms Around Me'.

This is what I saw tonight:

Billy Corgan, The Palais Theatre, July 26, 2005
This is Billy Corgan's first solo tour and the first time back in Australia since Adore with Mike Garson on keyboards. The tour focuses mainly on his debut solo album The Future Embrace (just a few weeks old) while steering completely clear of his Smashing Pumpkins and Zwan past. The sound is more electronic than his previous excursions - he has three other band members - one on imac, a female backing singer, and another person miming the processed drums. Corgan respected that we had come to hear his new music, so much so, that he gave a 10 minute speech following the end of the performance. Unfortunately during the speech, one too many people heckled him about The Smashing Pumpkins. On the first occasion he said, just let ME have my day. On the second occasion he asked if the person wanted his money back. The third occasion resulted in him throwing down his mic and departing the stage as the audience watched in shocked silence. As for the music, I am not entirely convinced but there are a few good songs. A surprise was the electronic version of AC/DC's 'Long Way to the Top'. The final song - a ballad to sparse instrumentation - had him shaking hands with audience members. I shook Billy's hand! It was very soft.
